Joanna Angel, Xander Corvus Co-Wrote, Directed the Big Budget Feature, Starring Leigh Raven
(LOS ANGELES, Calif. / September 23, 2016) – Alt-porn powerhouse BurningAngel Entertainment goes to hell with adult superstar Joanna Angel in Cindy Queen of Hell
an erotic big-budget opus premiering September 27 exclusively at Gamelink.com
. After its exclusive run with Gamelink, Cindy Queen of Hell
will debut at BurningAngel.com October 15th. The DVD ships to wholesalers via Exile Distribution October 10th with an October 17th street date.
The film marks the directing debut of performer – and BurningAngel favorite – Xander Corvus, who co-helmed the production alongside Angel. The pair conceptualized and wrote Cindy’s moody story about a young woman (Leigh Raven) who discovers that her father (Corvus) is Satan, and she is the sole heir to the Kingdom of Hell. Cindy’s choice: remain on Earth or become the next ruler of the Underworld. What’s a girl to do?
“Having Joanna and Xander play my mom and dad was so appropriate because they realy helped coach me through everything,” said Raven, about her Cindy role. “This was pretty much a dream movie for me and it will be hard to top.”
Angel agrees: “When I first had the idea to make a satanic porn movie, I knew it wouldn’t be possible without collaborating with the Devil himself… Xander Corvus,” said Angel. “The music, camera work and editing truly look spectacular, and the sex scenes are just so hot!”
Angel’s sharp direction behind the camera meshed precisely with Corvus’ artistic vision on the film, and the five sex scenes that include an orgy, a DP and a threesome – are complemented by an exceptional cast, including Anna Bell Peaks, Nikki Hearts, Lily Lane, Sarah Jessie, Ophelia Rain, Small Hands, Tommy Pistol, Gage Sin, Owen Gray and Chad Alva.
“The fact that Joanna made it possible to direct my first movie with my friends at BurningAngel was amazing,” said Corvus. “Plus Small Hands and I got to write an original song for the movie – Wake Up in Hell – and perform it in front of a crowd in the movie. Hail Satan!”
“We are very excited to unveil BurningAngel’s largest budget movie to date on Gamelink.com as an exclusive,” said Jeff Dillon, Vice President of Business Development & Marketing at Eline.com and Consultant for Gamelink.com. “It’s going to be hotter than hell.”
Cindy Queen of Hell is over two hours long and includes bonus scenes, photo galleries, animated menus, Behind the Scenes footage, BurningAngel trailers and DVD extras.

ABOUT JOANNA ANGEL AND BURNINGANGEL
“Joanna Angel, the porn star/director/producer who pioneered the “alt-porn” genre” – Dan Savage
“One of the most powerful feminist icons in the adult industry” – Pacific Standard
“Joanna Angel started the alt-porn studio Burning Angel, employing girls with tattoos and piercings, as part of a booming microgenre of punk-themed porn that began taking hold in the late ’90s and exploded during the 2000s.” – Grantland
Pushing the envelope, the BurningAngel empire is a refreshingly unique web cocktail of sex, rock n’ roll and pop culture. BurningAngel.com launched in 2002 with a few sets of photos and a band interview, conceived by two amateur college kids from Rutgers University, Joanna Angel and Mitch Fontaine. It has since exploded into a fierce indie company, pioneering a new species of erotica known as “alt porn,” with a network of websites and hundreds of DVDs to its credit. BurningAngel is revered for popularizing alternative-style girls, and prides itself on delivering hardcore adult content alongside band interviews, record reviews and its own social networking community.
As both the star of many of BurningAngel’s movies and company spokesperson/owner, Angel has stormed both mainstream and adult media. She has appeared on the cover of every major adult magazine (AVN, Club, Hustler, Picture Magazine, Adam Film World and Xtreme, and more), and has been featured in numerous tattoo magazines as well (some include Prick, Taboo, Inked and Savage). Angel has been featured on Fox News, Playboy TV, Fuse TV, G4 TV, KROQ Radio, as a regular on the Jason Ellis show on SIRIUS Radio, as a guest on the series premiere of TLC’s LA Ink and in a speaking role on Adult Swim’s Children’s Hospital. She has also appeared in The New York Times, Newsweek, Inc. Magazine, The Village Voice, The New York Press, Esquire UK, Details and Penthouse, among others. Heeb Magazine featured Angel as its cover girl, naming her one of the Top 100 Up-and-Coming Jews in 2005; the New York Post featured her as one of the Top 25 Sexiest New Yorkers, and Playboy.com named Angel one of the 50 Hottest Adult Stars on Instagram. Angel also co-hosted the 2016 AVN Awards in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Angel has also made her mark in the sex toy world, becoming a venerated Fleshlight Girl in 2013 and creating a BDSM line of toys with Stockroom. The same year, she made further strides into the mainstream world with a speaking role in the indie drama Scrapper. BurningAngel has brought home several awards from all the major adult shows—from AVN to XBIZ, to XRCO to YNOT. Some of its accolades include Best Porn Star Website, Best Web Premiere and Best Sex Comedy.
From a college dorm room to national television, Joanna Angel and BurningAngel have made their mark in entertainment, and it’s only just beginning.
